The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. Suspicious Network Analysis and Prediction System (SNAPS)


    The asymmetric threat poses perhaps the most dangerous risk to US forces and assets both overseas and at home. The sheer amount of data that needs to be analyzed in order to identify suspicious entities and networks is analogous to finding a needle in a haystack. To overcome this problem we must identify advanced techniques to automatically identify networks of suspicious activity while also pre ...

  2. High Flexibility Aircraft Primers

    SBC: DEFT, INC.            Topic: AF07T010

    The feasibility of a high flexibility, corrosion resistant primer for aircraft will be established by (1) screening unpigmented coatings based on impact flexibility, low temperature flexibility, tensile strength, elongation-to-break, and corrosion resistance (salt spray and filiform)and (2) testing non-chrome corrosion inhibitors effect on these same properties in a range of 10-85% of the critical ...

  3. Robust Multiple Target Tracking

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: A07T007

    ObjectVideo and University of Southern California propose to develop innovative algorithms and demonstrate a framework for robust and efficient visual tracking using Adaboost-based target detection methods, kernel-based tracker, and robust method for multi-frame data-association. The key issues of multiple target tracking are: variations in target shape and appearance due to camera viewpoint and i ...

  4. RADAR Moving Target Indication Interpretability Rating Scale (MTIIRS)

    SBC: dNovus RDI            Topic: AF07T032

    Because emerging Moving Target Indication recognition technologies will likely be soon be incorporated into developing systems such as Space-Based Radar (SBR) and retrofitted into new system blocks, (e.g. JSTARS, ASARS), there is an acute need to develop a rigorous theoretical framework for assessing MTI radar sensors. As these emerging technologies are introduced, additional emphasis will likely ...

  5. Prediction of the Degradation of Composite Materials for Emerging Army Facilities

    SBC: DUTTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A06T027

    An innovative methodology, based on mechanistic models, will be developed for prediction of long-term (25+ years) durability of composites for the US Army's emerging facilities in different climatic zones. Accelerated testing simulating the Army's composites applications in various constructions and fields will validate it. Phase I developed the basic predictive tool using the Arrehenius principle ...

  6. GPU Multi-Scale Particle Tracking and Multi-Fluid Simulations of the Radiation Belts

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF07T022

    The radiation belts are a significant hazard to spacecraft, from generating single-event computer upsets to degradation of spacecraft surfaces and overall performance. The properties of the radiation belts can vary dramatically under the influence of magnetic storms and storm-time substorms. The task of understanding and predicting radiation belt properties is made difficult because their properti ...

  7. Training Innovations for Nonverbal Cue Decoding

    SBC: eCrossCulture            Topic: OSD07T004

    We propose numerous innovations for training soldiers to decode nonverbal cues. Courseware will teach universal and culture specific nonverbal cues, distance and close range decoding. Video will be used extensively to present relevant, engaging material. Military relevant, game based scenarios will provide practice and assess student performance. Video vignettes of soldiers discussing experien ...

  8. Development of Amorphous Alloy Surface Coatings as Replacement for Chromate Technology

    SBC: ELECTRO CHEMICAL FINISHING            Topic: A07T010

    Electrodeposited chromium films have played a key role in the advancement of industrial technology over the past century. Unfortunately, such coatings have a critical problem, namely, the electroplating solution involves hexavalent Cr, which is a severe occupational and environmental hazard. We have produced a proprietary refractory amorphous metallic film that has a nanoindentation hardness app ...

  9. nanoFET Satellite Propulsion System for Defensive Counter Space

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF07T036

    The nanoparticle field extraction thruster (nanoFET) is being developed as an efficient, variable specific impulse electric propulsion device. NanoFET provides thrust by extracting nanometer- to micron-sized particles from a liquid reservoir, and accelerating them electrostatically. With its high efficiency and large thrust-to-power ratio over an unprecedented specific impulse range (100 to 10,000 ...

  10. High Temp High Energy Product Permanent Magnet Material

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: AF05T024

    Electron Energy Corporation and University of Delaware propose to develop multiphase nanocomposite magnets with room temperature maximum energy product potentially up to 100 MGOe for high temperature applications. Multiphase nanocomposite magnets could take the advantage of the extremely high coercivity of SmCo alloys, the high saturation magnetization and moderate intrinsic coercivity of other ha ...
